The OIT is hosting a Google Apps @ NC State information booth on the Brickyard during the month of April to inform students about the new university student e-mail service and to answer service-related questions.
OIT personnel will staff the booth from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday, April 22 (Earth Day) and from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Monday, April 26, and Wednesday, April 28.
OIT launched the Google Apps beta service early April, and more than 4,000 students are currently using the service, which includes Gmail, Google Sites, Google Docs, Google Calendar and Google Talk. Students are encouraged to opt in to the beta service by visiting the Google Apps @ NC State Web site and requesting an invitation or by signing up for the service at the information booth. Students can continue to opt in to the beta service until the summer semester, when production services are anticipated to go live. OIT will create Google Apps @ NC State accounts for those students who did not opt in during the beta period.
